Dr. Phil McGraw – How’s that working for you?

December 11, 2021

I hope you’ll forgive another reblog.

Short story of why I’m reblogging today.

Setting the scene: My house, in the kitchen, yesterday, around 11:45 am.

“I’m hungry. I think I’ll make a smoothie! I have and an hour and a half before work, which gives me plenty of time to drink and pee before I go.”
